    Ive always thought traditional Thai roofs look great , but people say the little tiles shift/leak.

    Ive never considered the raw sheeted roof , certainly that stuff is weather proof ( tho vunerable to coconuts ! ) but in a shady setting this one has weathered nicely..

    Be interesting to get costs on some of them I will probably look ata long land lease and put something on it one day but not yet. Unless I find a spot on a river way up in the north east that needs a little fix up. Great shots.

    Know I've posted a pic of this place on the western side of Tha Mai before, but it looked more pink today, a large family home, not apartments as I'd thought

    We will be geared to the average rather than the exceptional

    Big in Tha Mai... another large house nears completion in a recent subdivision; several similar size to this one being built, a bit of local ego competition maybe as to which family has the biggest house







    Rivo, Chob, obes and 1 others like this.

    We got a Colourbond roof and love the sound of rain at night. The ceiling tends to baffle the sound a bit.

    You can buy sheets with insulation attached to them.... forget what its called.

    White Colorbond is best and there's a spray-on insulation which makes it cooler (underneath) than a tiled roof. Would need panel-beating if attacked by coconuts ... 55

    Hmm , while I love the wood floors , and always had them ( mainly brushbox ) floors in Aus , the wood loving bugs are a worry here , so I think if I copied the above it would be a tiled slab on stilts ( the stilts painted in to match , and cut off the back bedroom and bath . Have an outhouse out near the sala as a 2nd loo and cold shower. A matching storage shed ...No pool ever again.

    You're not getting any younger so better plan something on ground level - works for me!
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    Ceramic or porcelain tiles are very cheap here and even the latest wood-plank* offerings [~A$30m2] are coming down in price. Laminated 'floating-floors' are not very popular.

    *The top quality products are almost impossible to tell apart from real wood.

    In the same vein ... I have seen solid compressed bamboo decking which is extremely durable. It's similar to Australian hardwood decking, complete with grooving to one side, also available tongue&grooved, and very heavy. It's about to be laid around a large domestic pool and will supposedly withstand the (Chiang Mai) elements including salt water better than most other decking products.

    I brought the wood look tiles 200 x 1000mm out of China. $9 AUD per meter square. Used them on a extrnal wall, bathroom floors and stair treads. The stair riser I did in a black tile. Looked great.

    These are Cotto porcelain, random pattern and the closest to nature I've seen. The tiling couple made such a perfect job of laying they had to use a liquid grout for the non-gaps.

    The good thing with these wood tiles Rob is very little waistage. If you lay them random that is. I got lots left over.
